City of Trenton Mayor Tony Mack is pictured at a National Night kick-off event in TrentonTrenton Mayor Tony Mack, 47, who is still in office, and his brother, Ralphiel Mack, have denied charges related to a 2010 bribery scheme in which $119,000 was offered in exchange for Mayor Mack’s help in the development of an automated parking garage on city-owned land. About $54,000 was actually paid, the indictment said, with the rest to be paid later. It was not immediately known if the trial will include testimony from a co-conspirator who pleaded guilty in the scheme – restaurant owner Joseph Giorgianni, also known as “The Fat Man” and JoJo, the name of his steak house, according to the indictment filed in U.S. District Court in Trenton. Mayor Mack has maintained his innocence and his lawyer has said he has no plans to step down despite a call to do so by Governor Chris Christie.
